    Re: Which polisher to get, NEXT

    Your correct it really isn't jist the RPM,
    Essentially you needed 2 attributes to outcorrect the 8mm and 3401 specs

    That was more RPM and more OPM

    Everything is give and take

    Re: Which polisher to get, NEXT

    The free spin is worthless for polishing and compounding

    It's perfect for wetsanding or machine applied wax/sealants

    It's also the only machine you can turn into a 3in forced

    Re: Which polisher to get, NEXT

    Re: Which polisher to get, NEXT

    I've based mine on how fast both machines took out a 1000 grit
    Smoothness(lack of imbalance/vibration)
    Ergonomics
    Machine heat
    RPM is king in the world of forced, just like with rotary

    Re: Headlight hazing prevention

    Wax/sealants are pointless

    If it needs sanded I'll do a wipe on UV coating or even a clear coat

    Re: Which polisher to get, NEXT

    Makita PO5000C is the best forced DA side by side

    Re: Removal of car Sealants

    Polish is always going to be the best route
    Next best thing
    Is to use an acid based product such such as a water spot remover

    Followed by an Alkaline based APC the followed by a solvent

    Re: Rupes Mille May need service?

    Dylan von will get you straight as he always does..and yes I've also told people it's not built strong like a 3401 nor a PO5000C

  11. Re: Rupes Bigfoort 15mkIII combo kits or just the tool?

    If it were me..21mm and 5in BP.

    With that said, tool only as you will most likely need a different weighted pad to get stock or better than stock free air balance

    Re: Wax remover?

    The only completly sure way to strip wax is a polish.

  14. Re: NEW FLEX XCE 3401 Corded and Cordless Polishers!

    That's cool
    My question is why do they both have lower RPM specs vs the 480 RPM of the 3401?
    Is it still 10 orbits per?

    And what did they do to improve this red BP?

    Re: Makita P5000 DA discontinued?

    The cordless XCE is going to correct slower
    They stepped down the RPMs from 480 to 430..
